Charlotte Rivers's Little Book of Letterpress offers a fine history of the craft and explores different types of presses, considering how letterpress is created and its current rise in DIY and crafting circles. Chapters offer details about letterpress creation and pack in color photos of old and new stationary alike, making this a top pick for any arts or general lending library.

This is a lovely little book (7" x 7") full of wonderfully creative examples of dozens of designers typographic letterpress work. The cover is produced on a letterpress but, unfortunately, the interior of the book is standard offset printing. Chronicle Books had no other choice, of course. However, some of the examples are lit is such a way that the subtle embossment of the letterpress process shows beautifully. This is a book for type fans but also is a rich graphic inspiration for all designers at 175 pages. Highly recommended.
